Opponent is leaving the site, so saving this round for next debate.
Obviously, give pro the win.
It's not, I've seen it twice already and it's fantastic. Best since RoTJ, maybe better.
I do not trust the masses, Disney, or Lucas.
Just because it is better than 1-3, does not make it good.
That sword saber seemed stupid.
It's not slightly better, it's miles better. And I actually like Revenge of the Sith quite a bit. I have to watch Return of the Jedi again, but it may well be better than that as well.
Hopefully it does stand up to the hype.
